Various types of coronoids are examined for finding the partitioning of pi-electrons in individual benzenoid rings of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. A class of catacondensed coronoids, namely fibonacenes, has four pi-electrons in every ring. Most other catacondensed coronoids have more than one type of benzenoid ring, each type with a different partition, but the average per ring is always four pi-electrons. For the class of catacondensed coronoids that have an acenic hole, simple quadratic… CONTINUE READING
